Musings on the Week

June 24, 2017


United States – “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Abraham Lincoln.

Politics – Democrats are no longer liberal: they aren’t progressive; they aren’t enlightened; they’re not tolerant; they’re corrupted, radicalized, subversive malcontents, only happy when anyone right-of-center is cowed into silence since all decency is dead on the left!

Politics – While not a formal religion, progressivism is like radical Islam in that it is based on beliefs and doctrine, not provable in a scientific sense, but instead accepted by faith.

Politics – The Southern Poverty Law Center has served as the media’s expert witness for evaluating “extremism” and “hatred,” but has displayed an ultra-liberal bias of its own.

Politics – The only “evidence” the Democrats can “produce” demonstrating Russian influence in the election is the inconvenient and inconceivable fact the Donald Trump won.

Politics – Mounting evidence of collusion, corruption, obstruction, and abuse of power has emerged pointing directly at Obama, Clinton, and the leadership of the Democrat Party.

Politics – The real scandals that have emerged from the Russia collusion investigation are: 1) domestic political spying scandal and coverup by NSA; 2) DOJ Clinton investigation obstruction and coverup by Loretta Lynch; and  3) NSC unmasking scandal by Susan Rice.

Politics – If justice was blind in America, it would be likely that Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton would each be facing serious judicial scrutiny, or possibly, even jail time.

Politics – The Democrat Party is aligned with the mainstream media and its 24/7 obsession with drama over substance to denigrate President Trump and paralyze his administration.

Politics – The Democrat Party has endorsed resistance to everything Trump says and does, and never apologizes for excesses, including lying and violence, of their sycophants.

Political – Democrat obstruction and Republican timidness have paralyzed Congress, so a Convention of States is needed to generate long overdue Constitutional Amendments.

Politics – Since the 2016 election loss, Democrats were quick to escalate the rhetoric from disbelief, to obstruction, to hate, to assaults, to beheadings humor, to attempted murder.

Politics – The Democrat “climate of hate” has resulted in 30 GOP Congressman to be physically attacked or received a death threat since May.

Politics – The Washington D.C. establishment is pursuing its slow-moving, unconstitutional coup d’etat against America’s constitutionally elected President, fought by lawyers and actively enabled by the partisan mainstream media.

Politics - Organizing for America, and spinoff Organizing for Action, is the chief fundraiser organization for Obama in private life: renegade rabble rouser for the progressive left’s planned re-takeover of a largely unsuspecting America.

Politics – Democrats are now 0 for 4 in special elections, each one hyped as a “high-stakesreferendum on Trump, and each reinforcing his personal popularity and political support.

Media - The most recent presidential campaign have made crystal clear, it's that the major news media in America are teeming with leftists who overtly and covertly promote leftist worldviews and agendas.

Media – President Trump no longer allows the partisan mainstream media to set the news narrative, countering with Tweets refuting half truths directly to the American people.

Media – The many changes at the Fox News Channel, including abandoning their “Fair and Balanced” brand has caused a shakeup in the rating and viewer “wait and see” attitude.

United States – “Being president is like running a cemetery; you’ve got a lot of people under you and nobody’s listening.” Bill Clinton.

Demographics – People vote with their pocketbook abandoning Democrat lead cities as government increases, taxes increase, population density increases, personal freedoms erode, families disappear, welfare increases, schools decline, and crime rates increase.

Economy – Crypto-currencies or cyber-currencies, such as bitcoin, are today’s “tulip mania” with no inherent value and an exaggerated sense of financial entitlement.

Pension – Underfunded pensions have been a known problem for decades, so rewarding states and cities for this unsustainable behavior with federal bailouts is not a viable option.

Healthcare – Both political parties try to enact comprehensive health care (ObamaCare, now TrumpCare) reform by insisting on patching up a rickety, malfunctioning model. 

Healthcare – Congressional Budget Office projections have been notoriously inaccurate and ignored, but Democrats now want to treat them as fact when looking at replacement bills.

Immigration – President Trump asked Congress to pass legislation banning immigrants from accessing public assistance within five years of entering the country.

Environment - Earth is about 4.5 billion years old, and has experienced five major Ice Ages and subsequent warming periods, and each had no humans to blame for global warming.

Education – Offering “free college tuition” is not free and is really economic affirmative action and redistribution of wealth, denying quality education to the middle class.

Education – It’s too bad that, other than the service academies, there are only about ten major universities that I would pay for my kids to attend for a balanced education.

Elections – Democrats, who invented gerrymandering election districts, no longer like this practice now that Republicans have mastered this technique for their partisan advantage.

Elections – A post-election poll found that as many as 5.7 million non-citizens voted illegally in the 2008 election, once again raising the need to clean up voting roles and practices,

Drugs – Recreational marijuana use in Colorado, Oregon and Washington correlates to an increase in auto collision claim increases, but have not defined danger rates (DUI, DWI).

Abortion – Planned Parenthood is functioning today as its eugenics-obsessed founders intended, providing infanticide to cull out the lower classes and lesser races.

United States – “Washington, D.C., is twelve square miles bordered by reality.” Andrew Johnson.

GWOT – Islam is not a religion, but a theocratic form of government wherein the people are all kept oppressed under Sharia Law and all non-Muslims are must submit to Islamic law.
